on Persistence
Sean Irvine

Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence & determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'press on' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race. 

- Calvin Coolidge
